Storage:  2-8 C in the dark.

Important: Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. These products contain <0.05% (w/w) azide which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the buildup of shock sensitive compounds. Dispose in accordance with regulations from your institute.

TIMP metallopeptidase inhibitor 1 (TIMP-1), also known as TIMP1, is a glycoprotein that is expressed from the several tissues of organisms. TIMP-1 protein is a member of the TIMP family. The glycoprotein is a natural inhibitor of the matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), a group of peptidases involved in degradation of the extracellular matrix. In addition to its inhibitory role against most of the known MMPs, the encoded protein is able to promote cell proliferation in a wide range of cell types, and may also have an anti-apoptotic function. Diseases associated with TIMP1 include oral submucous fibrosis and Sorsby Fundus Dystrophy.
